important insight regarding the mechanisms that led to tornadogenesis. Weather radar analysis confirmed that the parent storm was a left-moving cell. Reflectivity values were not particularly high and the storm was rather low topped as compared to “classic” supercells documented in other parts of the world (e.g., Kumjian and Ryzhkov 2008 ). Interestingly, the study by Held et al. (2010) reports further examples of supercells with relatively low tops over SP during the cold seasons (austral autumn and
